OMNICIRCUS Productions Presents
Sukhawat Ali Khan and Riffat Salamat are children of the legendary
Classical Indian vocalist Ustad Salamat Ali Khan. Their family represents a
five hundred year lineage of musicians who originally performed at the
court of Akbar the Great.
Sukhawat and Riffat now lead a group of international musicians and their
band ALI KHAN wows audiences with their exotic blend of traditional Sufi
Qawwalli, Ghazal, and folk songs. Audiences all over California are
listening, dancing and trancing to this world fusion groove oriented sound.
"ALI KHAN...is a rare, unique and thoroughly delightful experience what
used to be called 'World Music' but now perhaps should be described as 21st
century music. The great hearted spirit of this trans-national combo and
the thrilling and literally entrancing voices of Sukhawat and Riffat Ali
Khan combine to create an immediately accessible and ecstatic musical
experience that arrives just in time to fill the aching void left in so
many hearts by the recent loss of qawwali master and global treasure Nusrat
Fateh Ali Khan. Thank Allah!" - Paul Williams, Crawdaddy magazine, 9/97
ALI KHAN is pleased to announce a concert at the OMNICIRCUS performance space.
